« on: June 16, 2009, 07:28:10 AM »

Does anyone know if the new Samsung 1.5TB HDD will work in the DNS-343 unit?
Want to make sure before I buy 4 units and can't get em' to work in the DNS-343.

Samsung's 1.5TB EcoGreen F2EG SATA HDD (three 500 GB platters)

EcoGreen F2

Much appreciated.

Thanks!

One caveat, green drives usually mean they will shut down to save energy. This MAY cause problems if one shuts down and the array breaks.
I don't know this for a fact, just speculation. I am very hesitant to recommend green drives for a raid 5 array.
Please!
Someone correct me if this is a wrong assumption. I have not, nor am able to afford, testing green drives for clients.

I don't see why the array would break. Otherwise the array would break when you have HDD Hibernation enabled as part of the NAS.
